Bilberries are a low-growing deciduous shrub. Can be distinguishable from blueberries only when the berries are in season. Bilberries and blueberries may look similar on the outside; however, blueberry fruit pulp is light green in color, bilberry fruit pulp is red or purple.
This small deciduous shrub has lantern-shaped green-pink flowers and edible blue-black berries.
The fruit can be consumed raw or cooked and can be used to make jams, pies, etc..
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
